Publishing magnates Ralph, Joseph Jr., and Herbert Pulitzer of the New York World and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch sponsored the Pulitzer Trophy Race to promote aviation. The pilot and airplane with the fastest elapsed time during four laps over a 50-kilometer (32-mile) closed course won the contest. The trophy, crafted by sculptor Mario Josef Korbel, exemplifies early Art Deco style.
